Could you recommend a systemic pesticide for orchids. I have found tiny white bugs in two of my dembrodiums.
Hi Ann

Thanks for your enquiry

Each country has its products and it is difficult to give a general recommendation of suitable products on the web, especially across the
oceans. . Malathion can generally be recommended, but must be used carefully

I would suggest you go to your local plant nursery or garden centre and talk to them about your problem and get the pest property identified, and they should be able to suggest the most appropriate and safest product
